Tips for making Homemade Ginger Sauce

Allow the dish to sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving. This will allow the flavors time to blend.

You will notice a difference in color and flavor if you use dark soy sauce. You can use regular or light soy sauce in its place if you don’t have dark soy.

This recipe can be improved by adding shallots. They have a more mild, more balanced flavor than onions.
